Did your dentist inform you that it’s time for your child to see an orthodontist? If you’re like any parent, the first question you have is likely “what will this cost me?!”
We admit, orthodontic treatment is an investment. But it’s an important and necessary investment for your child (or yourself!). The benefits of receiving quality orthodontic care far outweigh the costs involved. At Hudson Orthodontics, we don’t let finances get in the way of receiving quality orthodontic care. We do everything we can to make getting braces as affordable as possible. We’ve outlined some ways to save big on orthodontic treatment below. We hope you find this info helpful as you explore the wonderful world of orthodontics!
TIP #1: FLEX SPENDING/HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS
This is probably the most UNTAPPED resource for orthodontic care. Many people don’t realize that with flexible spending accounts, if you do not use the funds in the account by the end of the year, the money is returned to your employer! Take advantage of those dollars by: starting a child in treatment, getting Invisalign for yourself or a spouse, ordering custom mouthguards or getting an extra set of retainers (we know you’ll find this spare set handy especially if it’s for the kids!)
TIP #2: ASK ABOUT FLEXIBLE FINANCING & PAYMENT OPTIONS
To make orthodontic treatment more affordable, Dr. Hudson offers 0% interest financing, offers no down payment options and low monthly payments. Our team will work with you to uncover the absolute best and most convenient payment plan to fit your budget and lifestyle.
TIP #3: PROMOTIONS

TIP #4: INSURANCE
Sometimes orthodontic care is covered under insurance plans. If your insurance does cover orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Every insurance plan is different. Our office will review your insurance to determine your coverage and estimate costs. Be sure to supply your insurance information to us at your first appointment to make this process a breeze!
TIP #5: MILITARY & FAMILY MEMBER DISCOUNTS
We are forever grateful to our service men and women who sacrifice their lives for our country. We offer a military discount to active military personnel and their families. And for those families who have one child in treatment already, we offer multi-family member discounts. That applies to you too, Mom & Dad!
Remember, orthodontic treatment is an important investment from a dental and overall health perspective AND a self-esteem and confidence perspective.
